“£58 For A 58” Sponsorship Appeal
Back in 2008, the C58LG launched this fund raising scheme to help raise funds for the one-day purchase of a Class 58 locomotive. Now that we have achieved this, the need for income still remains in order for us to restore, run and maintain our locomotive, 58016 – it’s an expensive business to be in!
As a result we are re-launching this sponsorship scheme whereby members and non-members of the C58LG are able to “sponsor” individual parts of a locomotive.
Everything on a Class 58 – from the main engine block to the power handles to the nuts and bolts that hold the whole thing together, have been accounted for and all on-thousand items have been allocated a hypothetical cost of £58 (or a multiple thereof for larger items).
For each item you sponsor, you will receive a personalised certificate confirming your involvement with the scheme.
If we are successful in getting all the components sponsored, we will be able to raise £58,000 which is a great amount of money and keep us in a great position to be able to continue the upkeep of 58015.
Obviously we expect some items, such as the power handles, to be the most popular items for sponsorship for we ask sponsors to identify a number of items in order of preference they wish to sponsor.
A table of items is provided and we will make constant updates to the table in future issues of our in-house magazine “Red Diamond” and we will also make the table available on our website www.c58lg.co.uk so everyone can keep track of which items are still available. We would like to make it clear that this sponsorship is purely a fundraising event and that you will not physically own the items.
Finally, please be rest assured that the C58LG committee, in line with our Constitution, will look at buying only the best available parts and spares that become available to continue the high quality restoration that is being undertaken on 58016.
If you have any questions or queries relating to this scheme, please do not hesitate to contact the Class 58 Locomotive Group committee, either by post or by email.
Thank you for your support.
